Research Interests/Areas

Theoretical and Computational Biophysics

My long-term research goal is to explore molecular mechanisms of cellular systems and materials as well as to develop new computational tools in order to understand fundamental physical principles behind biological and materials phenomena.

On-going research projects include:

  1. Membrane deformation proteins, e.g., BAR family proteins;
  2. Actin cytoskeleton, which participates in many essential cellular processes such as signal transduction, cell division, cellular shape and volume changes, cell migration, and vesicular trafficking;
  3. Amino acid – water interactions;
  4. Functioning mechanism of photoreceptor protein in plants.
